"Great pocket suburb"

An excellent little suburb that is starting to bloom.
Been here since 2012, work in the city is a breeze with loads of public transport and probably only a 10 mins drive.
You get to skip the crazy jams on the freeways which makes me wonder why you would spend more to live so far away from the city.
There were big blocks before but there has been a spike in subdivisions so land is slightly small now but houses look much newer.
Located right after Bedford for at least 10-20% cheaper, whats there not to like.
Within the Morley redevelopment precinct, this is a suburb to watch for the future.

"Good Starter Suburb"

Embleton is a good starter suburb for young families. It's not flash and nothing pretty but a great young community.

"Good honest suburb bound for great things"

Have enjoyed living in the area for nearly 20 years. It never seems to be far from anything, especially near Mount lawley strip (without the price tag), never been broken into (touch wood)
as the area changes with a number of new homes being built Embleton is a fantastic Investment.
love the riverside gardens dog park

"Close to everything you need, but quiet too."

I've lived in Embleton for 13 years and love it. Really quiet, great neighbourhood and close to shops, city and transport access. Direct bus to Mt Lawley and city, short walk to Baysie train station and Tonkien Highway is very close. I love it here and think it is undervalued for it's location. Get in while you can.

"An up and Coming area with great family life"

A stones throw away from the galleria, you can walk there. Medical centres around the corner and great family lifestyle. Many of the older houses are now being renovated or newly rebuilt.

The bus line will take you straight to the Mt Lawley cafe district, and a quick ride to the heart of the CBD. A child care facility located in the heart of Embleton, two highshools and a primary school literally around each corner you turn.

Also for any student studying at Edith Cowan University as it's only a stones throw away.

A great lifestyle for any family.

  • Close to all local amenities

"New In Embleton"

We just moved in and just felt that with one of the most important decision in our lives - we got it right. We have been looking for a home for our growng family for almost 2 years now and just feel that Embie remains affordable compared to its surrounding suburb.

The neighbourhood is fantastic with life's convenience nearby. 5 minutes to Morley Shopping Centre and Beaufort Street, 20 mins to the city.....

Schools, parks, pharmacists, church......golf course.......and...and....and....

For those who are looking at Embie ...... its really under-rated for what it has to offer....... you will not regret.
